Talk to Tim Skubick and other members of the press?

Ronna Romney McDaniel ain't got time for that. At least while running for MIGOP Chair... Now that her strategy of only talking to delegates payed off and she has won the election to replace Bobby Schostak as leader of the Michigan Republican Party, she's started talking. 

Shortly after the convention, she said it was time to "move forward" from issues surrounding Dave Agema. Tonight, Romney-McDaniel's appearance on Off the Record will air at 6 p.m. across Michigan's PBS affiliates. (Your local time may be different though.)

The website for OTR says:

"The panel discusses Governor Snyder vs. the state board of education on reforming schools.  The guest is State Republican Party Chair, Ronna Romney McDaniel.  Susan Demas, Zoe Clark, and Chad Livengood join senior capitol correspondent Tim Skubick."

Stay tuned! Her opponents claimed she wasn't ready for prime time, I think they underestimate her. We'll see. Skubick, along with Livengood, Demas, and Clark, are a great test and good experience heading into the 2016 cycle.

  1. Ronna did well. I have watched Skubick over the years, he has grown arrogant and snobbish. Did I say Ronna did well? They tried to beat her with the homophobe stick and it didn’t work. They looked foolish. Whenever I watch an encounter like this the media always come off as rabid dogs, snarling and yapping, it just makes you want to pull their chain.
    Thanks Ronna, you made me feel good to be a Grass Roots Republican.

  2. That is really nice to hear. thank you for the update and good luck.
